Sculptural Solid Wood and Handcrafted Sofa by Jose Zanine Caldas, circa 1980

US$65,538.63

About

Sculptural and important solid wood sofa by Zanine Caldas, circa 1980. This sofa made up of solid vinhatico wood is typical of Jose Zanine Caldas work. The forms given to this piece by Caldas result from the constraints linked to this material. The sensual curves of the seat and the back contrast with the elements of the assemblage, which become a decorative element. This kind of piece was designed only by order for houses created by Zanine Caldas himself. Each piece with variations is unique. Provenance: Collection Marius Fontana, Rio de Janeiro, Brésil. A certificate can be provided on request.
